JEFFERSON CITY — The House voted 92-61 Tuesday for legislation that would require permission slips and prohibit abortion providers from teaching or providing materials for the schools’ sex education courses. The bill needs a final vote to move to the Senate.
Missouri law allows parents to remove their children from human sexuality classes.
Parents would have to sign forms stating they had been informed of the content of the sex education courses and approved of their children’s participation.
The Kansas State Board of Education voted last month to require schools to get permission from parents before enrolling children in sex education classes.
